An argument could be made for Sting, not that I will make it, just on the basis of his work with Branford, Kenny Kirkland, etc for "Bring on the Night". He played with Gil Evans Orchestra with that band and did full on miles show. I enjoyed that stuff more than the police. However, that's due to the others, not so much him.

A good argument could be made for Lou Reed, but he never really totally left behind VU material, and returned to it. But the bulk of his solo work measures well.

Can you count jazz musicians that left ensembles to form own bands? If so, then you could go on forever re Bird, Monk, Trane, Miles...

I do think in "our" domain that your guy, Rob's too, is the ONE good example, though I've never caught the popular RT disease personally.

;)

EDIT!!!!

Amazing! I saw your lead comment on Sting, and thought you'd said that repling to ME, but realize we independently wrote those comments...

Do do do-do, DO do do-do (sorry, that's supposed to be TZone theme...?)

Maybe. Didn't he give them 42 seconds in their reunion at the recent MTV awards?

I could accept a Sting argument, but the Police catalog is pretty indelible.

Much as I seem to different from folks around here, I never really connected to Lou Reed. Maybe it was the LA - NY thing.

And as for jazz, I am seriously lacking in the historical knowledge to argue anything. I went through a phase in my early 20s but I think I'll stick to rock and r&b and country.

I'm with you on Lou. Just never did it for me.


Now don't get me started on the whole Davy Jones solo/Monkees thing.
